For the highest level of protection against x-ray and gamma radiation, the hospital, veterinary and medical fields look to sheet lead, lead bricks, blocks, and cadmium sheet. The malleability of cadmium sheet and sheet lead lend themselves to a wide variety of medical construction projects and uses where gamma ray protection is a consideration, such as in doors, walls, and frames. Where the specifications of a project require a material with greater thickness than sheet lead or cadmium sheet, lead bricks and blocks can offer a more suitable and flexible alternative. For dedicated shielded storage, industry professionals look to radioactive isotope containers or lead-lined storage cabinets in a wide range of formats.
